Which would get louder:

a) 1 12" sub (300wrms) powered with 241wrms @ 4 ohms

b) 2 10" subs (250wrms each) powered with 500wrms @ 2 ohms. (each sub will see the full 250)

Thanks guys!!

generally the 2 10"s(if the same model) but you cant use wattage as an estimate of whats louder it depends on efficiency and the overall goal of that sub whether its SQ or SPL

the subs are both infinity's.

A) 12" - 1230 (300wrms)
B) 10" - 1030 (250wrms)

I kno that if I get one 12, I'll be underpowering it. My amp does around 241wrms @ 4ohms and 500 @ 2ohms. I think the 2 10's will be a better match. How loud will these get compared to one 12? They will each get .75cuft (what infinity recommends). I'm more into SPL than SQ......2 10's better?

The 2 10's will be roughly twice as loud.
Do to the extra amount of watts/surface area.

excellent.........I guess the only thing is that it won't hit as deep
